Immersive VR Event Domes as Platforms for Communication by Pacific Domes
Pacific Domes featured in TEDx “Brother, can you spare a paradigm?”
— ED LANTZ, VORTEX IMMERSION MEDIA
Two futuristic companies, Vortex Immersion Media and Pacific Domes partnered in a collaborative project to erect a permanent 44ft. Immersive Virtual Reality Dome in Las Angeles, California that has continued to host spectacular 360° events since 2013. A vision of domes received during his teenage years, has shaped Ed Lantz’s life path and fueled his passion for VR Domes as communication platforms in many arenas.
Ed Lantz, President/CTO of Vortex Immersion Media and visionary student of consciousness, shared his inspiring story on TEDx…”Brother, can you spare a paradigm?” His vision of domes was one of immersive spaces where performers were projecting their consciousness onto the dome and transporting the audience into deep inner realms… exploring the quantum ‘inner space movie’.
Pacific Domes was founded in 1980 by Asha Deliverance, whose life goal has been to create a sustainable future, promote the architectural integrity of the geodesic dome, and continue the legacy of Buckminster Fuller, father of the modern geodesic dome design… “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
